Custom Portfolio Management

Custom Portfolio Management

It might surprise you that Vanguard estimates for some people, using the right kind of advisor can add 3% in net returns each year; much more than a typical financial advisor may charge to help you. Read Vanguard's full report here to see how a combination of behavioral coaching, asset location, proper rebalancing, trading, and withdrawals can substantially alter your performance over time. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as just buying cheap index funds and putting things on autopilot.

At Dentist Advisors, once your dashboard is built, and we have a complete and accurate view of your entire financial picture, we'll make adjustments to your current strategy, or put your strategy in motion for the first time. We'll build on what you already have—especially if it's already well positioned. We'll be cautious as we analyze the tax impact of any changes, and start to position your portfolio with cost-effective investments and a highly disciplined approach that captures value across countries, companies, currencies, and real estate. Your tax rate, liquidity,  cash flow, personality profile, time frames, and risk tolerance will all be factored into your investment strategy. As markets go through ups and downs, we’ll be your voice of reason to help you navigate adjustments and stay consistent when it's difficult to do so.

Financial Planning Dashboard

Financial Planning Dashboard

You and your advisor will collaborate using real-time information from your personal dashboard. You’ll be able to view all your account activity, assets, and debts in one place. The dashboard gathers data from your various financial institutions in real time, which means you can see your net worth on demand. Instead of relying on hunches and assumptions, you and your advisor can make decisions much faster, and with greater precision. Whether you're deciding to pay cash or finance a new purchase, or looking to invest in real estate, you and your advisor can decide how to facilitate the right strategy faster than ever before.

Quarterly net worth reports

Quarterly net worth reports

Know your wealth is growing fast enough to fulfill your long term goals

Along with a real time net worth summary, which you can always view on your dashboard, we will deliver quarterly net worth progress reports to show a historical view of your progress. The report includes a detailed breakdown of your assets and debts so it’s clear which factors are contributing to growth (or decline).
